Previously, the location given through AirVPN by DNS was close to where the server was provisioned, but lately I have been getting bizarre locations.  For example, I'm currently connected to Metallah/Pennsylvania, but it's showing my location as South Africa.  I've had it give me other odd locations as well.  This has become an issue because some of the sites I use require me to be in the US, and they don't work when I use AirVPN.  The location really should stick to where the server is located for ease of use.

IP-API reports this:

$ curl ip-api.com/
  "country"     : "United States",
  "countryCode" : "US",
  "region"      : "NY",
  "regionName"  : "New York",
  "city"        : "New York",
  "district"    : "",
  "zip"         : "10123",
  "lat"         : 40.7433,
  "lon"         : -74.0079,
  "timezone"    : "America/New_York",
  "isp"         : "VolumeDrive",
  "org"         : "Volumedrive cloud services",
  "as"          : "AS46664 VolumeDrive",
  "mobile"      : false,
  "proxy"       : false,
  "query"       : ""

Therefore, simply a GeoIP database error.

Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs helps us read your thread.

~ Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. ~

Instead of writing me a personal mail, consider contacting me via XMPP at gigan3rd@xmpp.airvpn.org or join the lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org. I might read the mail too late whereas I'm always available on XMPP ;)
